My reference source (Opal) shares two-paged images, so that uploading needs splitting+cropping (that has been automatized); so, if I can simply automatyze the deletion of doubled pages at the beginning of pdf files to be merged with an additional parameter, the work is done. Unluckily, I can't simply upload original list of pdf files, since any of them needs splitting/cropping (and often removing some pages at the beginning of individual pdf files).

Following a personal "rule", I'm uploading original pdf file/files into a sourceFiles.zip file into item folder, so that source is saved for any future use/derivation.

fwiw you can specify that the bookreader be one-up by default so that a single images (in your case it looks like a spread) appears. to do this you would add this metadata pair to the item:
bookreader-defaults=mode/1up

You might try using Briss to split/crop the PDFs:

Thanks! I found 15 items coming from Opal, and uploaded by other users, so far not assigned to opallibriantichi collection:


The first one is a "double page" item and.... just now I see that djvu and jp2.zip files are perfectly splitted!!!

Me stupid.... this simplifies a lot uploading scripts and lowers terribly Tool Labs servers load. :-(

I'll review deeply the whole job.

No, I took a better look, pages are not splitted into djvu file nor into jp2/jpg zip files; and splitting is absolutely needed to proofread text.

So, splitting before uploading seems needed, if I'm not going wrong again.

splitting them would certainly be better.
